No Grant for MA South Shore Dredging
June 22, 2014
The Massachusetts communities of Marshfield and Scituate have fallen short in their bid to secure a federal grant for a proposed dredging project, according to an article on PatriotLedger.com.
On Monday (June 16, 2014), the U.S. Department of Interior announced it awarded $102.7 million to support 54 projects along the Atlantic coast as part of Hurricane Sandy Coastal Resiliency Competitive Grant Program. Four projects out of Massachusetts were accepted, none of which are on the South Shore.
Marshfield and Scituate had jointly applied for a $4.8 million grant to dredge the channel of the South River, from the Sea Street bridge to the Spit, where it meets the North River.
